Fly Fishing Guidance

in Fly Fishing

Nothing makes me want to drop my fly box and flee faster then when someone says, “Hey, can you teach me how to Fly Fish?”

My dread isn’t because I don’t want to help someone out, but rather from the fact I’m a terrible (bad/horrible/awful) instructor. I know this because I’ve tried in the past, instructor style.

Every time it ends in fly line wrapped around my students head and they are looking at me like, well, I’m a terrible instructor.

The fact is, I just Fly Fish. The mechanics of it all just magically happens when I’m on the water and teaching it to someone else, is not my cup o’ tea.

Which is why it’s a good thing there are Fly Fishing Experts out there like Hank…

This video will surely help me out in the future when the dreaded question comes up. A simple re-direction to this youtube video should do the trick.

Problem solved.

It’s all the snapping and slamming that I was doing that likely attracted the bear. Attracts big fish, but bears too.

I think you’re right Steve.
Your fine snapping technique brought in the big fish AND also the big bear. Impressive on both accounts.

Just ‘Snap it’ is a good fly fishing mantra on the water.

I’d never be able to fish with this guy. I’d be laughing too hard.

My wife said this was what it was like when I was trying to teach her. I thought I was much funnier and better looking…just sayin’.

Your teaching must be accepted by those who are willing to learn the “unorthodox” way… that’s all!!! Simple, carefree, and well… it worked for me! = )
